I can't fault my players - Lambert

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert says he "cannot fault" his players after a 1-0 home loss to Premier League champions Manchester City.

A Carlos Tevez goal on the stroke of half-time was enough to give City all three points and Lambert believes his team can have "their heads held high" after a spirited performance which saw them have a shot cleared off the line early on.

Villa remain in 18th position though and face the other two teams in the relegation zone, Reading and QPR, in their next two matches.
